murlocsWeaning Lamb: The Molochs

Track: You and Me

Based In: L.A., USA

Flavours Of: Kurt Vile / Bob Dylan

‘You and Me’ is a breezy jangle of 60’s inspired pop from LA outfit The Molochs. With relaxed guitar solos and every-man vocals, ‘You and Me’ offers a soft and sun-faded glimpse of their up coming album America’s Velvet Glory.

 

slotrustWeaning Lamb: Slothrust

Track: Rotten Pumpkin

Based In: Brooklyn, USA

Flavours Of: PJ Harvey / Slant 6

Slick with harmonies, a fist-pumping pace and cracking lyrics “reach inside of me and scoop out my seeds“, ‘Rotten Pumpin’ is a tasty treat from Slothrust. The Brooklyn trio dish out melodic, over driven grunge sounds on their latest track.

 

grammarWeaning Lamb: Grammar

Track: Michigan

Based In: Massachusett, USA

Flavours Of: Rhye / Wet

‘Michigan’s sultry start slides into an uplifting chorus glimmering with 70’s synths. The second single from electro-pop group Grammar shimmers with muted beats and angelic vocals.

 

loose-buttonWeaning Lamb: Loose Buttons

Track: Milk & Roses

Based In: NYC, USA

Flavours Of: Arctic Monkeys / Nothing But Thieves

With an Alex Turner-tinged swagger, Loose Buttons reflect on the broken-hearted stage of a break up with ‘Milk & Roses’. The song blooms with an understated, British-sounding take on classic alt-rock production.

rationaleWeaning Lamb: Rationale

Track: Vessels

Based In: London, UK

Flavours Of: Drake / John Legend

‘Vessels’ is a stunning, soulful cut from Rationale. Sam Smith-calibre vocals paired with trailblazing minimalist production makes this track very near flawless.

 

parcelsWeaning Lamb: Parcels

Track: Older

Based In: Berlin/Byron Bay

Flavours Of: Metronomy / Client Liaison

‘Older’ is a pure heart-warmer from Parcels. The quintet now split their time between Byron Bay and Berlin, influencing their blend of sunny yet savvy pop polished to perfection.
